Data holding centreHellenic Centre for Marine Research, Institute of Oceanography
CountryGreece  Greece
Time period1996 - 2000
OngoingNo
Geographical area

Coastal and open sea regions of the Aegean and Ionian seas

Observations 
Parameters

Concentration of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in sediment samples

Instruments

Gas chromatograph mass spectrometers

Description 
Summary

Data have been collected within the framework of national and international research projects, aiming at improving the existing knowledge of the quality of the marine environment. Analyses have been performed in surface sediments collected from various coastal and open sea areas in Greece. Both aliphatic and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons have been determined by gas chromatography mass spectrometry in order to a) estimate the petroleum related pollution in the Greek seas b) study the biogeochemical cycles of the hydrocarbons c) estimate the concentration levels of the carcinogenic PAHs
